I received the Telecommunications Engineering MSc in 2008, the Telematics Engineering MSc in 2010, and the PhD on M2M (Machine-to-Machine) architectures for Smart Grids in 2014, all them from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain. Since April 2017, I work as Assistant Professor at the Telecommunications Engineering School of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, where I teach Information Theory and Communications Networks. I have participated in several Spanish and European R&D projects in the areas of NGN (Next Generation Networks) and the application of M2M communications to e-health and Smart Grids. As a result of my research activities, I hold an European Patent and have authored and co-authored 20+ papers published in top-tier conferences and journals. My current research interests include optimization of M2M communications networks based on analysis and simulation, and cybersecurity and data analytics for the IoT (Internet of Things), with especial emphasis on Smart Cities, Smart Grids, and IIoT/Industry 4.0.
- March 2017: I will be at YES-Europe 2018 making a presentation on "Innovation in Grids - Smart Grids for Smart Cities". Hope to see you there :).
- February 2017: I was, together with my colleague Prof. Manuel Alvarez-Campana, presenting Smart CEI Moncloa at Urban Intelligence Global Conference.
- December 2017: Check out the paper we have just published in Sensors about Smart CEI Moncloa, the UPM IoT platform for the experimentation and evaluation of Smart City services.
- August 2017:
- Our paper "Noise sources, effects and countermeasures in NB-PLC networks: A practical approach" has just been published in Energies. Check it out!
- Our paper "Together or separately? Evaluating the CFP in PRIME using SimPRIME" has been accepted at IEEE SmartGridComm 2017.
- July 2017: Do you want to know about cybersecurity vulnerabilities in NBPLC PRIME technology? Check out the very first comprehensive study on the issue we have just published in Security and Communication Networks. It's open access!

I was born in Algeciras in 1982. I am a family man: I am happily-married with my beloved María and we have a daughter and a son, our beloved Emma and Daniel. We love enjoying time together, as well as with our family and friends. I like good music, good movies, cuisine (traditional and nouvelle), and cooking. I also like football: I am a Real Madrid supporter - What else? I said I like football - and I (used to) play futsal in two amateur teams. I also practice other sports, like snowboarding, biking, and running. I have run three marathons: Berlin'13 (4:05:26), Amsterdam'14 (3:54:44), and Valencia'15 (4:09:51). I would say that endurance sports are like any other drug: you enjoy while practicing them, you carry a major hangover afterwards, and you miss them so much when you quit.
I dream with a more egalitarian society based on respect, with a World without frontiers where nobody were forced to leave their motherland.
